Missoula Cabella's opens next summer

(SIDNEY, NE)- Cabella's Incorporated says it will open its new store in Missoula this coming summer. 

Developers and Missoula officials had already confirmed Cabella's would be part of a major redevelopment of the old Kmart shopping center on South Brooks, but today's announcement made that official. The development is being called "South Crossing."

Crews are currently demolishing the old Kmart and construction on the new store will begin this fall with a target opening date of next summer. Cabella's expects to employ 90 full-time, part-time and seasonal workers, with most coming from the Missoula area. 

The new store is a Cabell's Outpost, which is much smaller than the massive regional stores like the one in Post Falls, Idaho. This store will measure 42,000 square feet but will have the same "rugged outdoor look" that's become the company's trademark for its retail outlets. The Outpost stores are usually located in markets with less than 250,000 people, such as Missoula and the new store in Kalispell. 

Cabella's opened its first Montana store in Billings in 2009.

In addition to merchandise in the store, the Cabella's Outpost will also give customers a chance to place orders online and pick them up locally.
